Having a stagnant or small community will make your (the user's) experience more difficult when things go wrong and during development in general. We think Camel's community is highly active and expand- ing, so you are in luck! In this appendix we cover some main aspects of the Camel community. D.1 Apache Camel website The Apache Camel website,, will be your main resource when using Camel. You may have already noticed that we reference pages from the Camel website throughout the book. That's no mistake--it's a good resource for us too. On the Camel website, you'll find links for downloads, documentation, support, and many other topics. D.2 FuseSource FuseSource is a company that offers a productized version of Apache Camel, as well as training, consulting, and enterprise subscriptions to help IT organizations build mission-critical applications with Apache Camel.
